Subtitled "a subject guide to data on industrial, business, social, educational, financial, and other topics for the United States and internationally," the four-volume set, Statistics Sources, is an impressive and extensive finding aid.
Its publisher, Gale Cengage, describes the set as follows:
This easy-to-use alphabetically arranged dictionary serves as a guide to current sources of factual quantitative information on more than 20,000 specific subjects, incorporating almost 135,000 citations and more than 1,600 sources. Statistics Sources provides the widest possible range of print and nonprint, published and unpublished, and electronic and other forms of U.S. and international statistical data on industrial, business, social, educational, financial and other topics.
